Fairport To Middlewich Port !

Fairport To Middlewich Port
Cheshire concert promoter Liz Rosenfield has been bravely battling on with the help of the Cheshire Folk team despite having both hands bandaged after a recent fall from a horse and subsequent tendon surgery.

Unable to drive or do much at all, she is really looking forward to the fruition of her earlier planning for a successful concert series and hopes to have both her hands back in use by mid autumn at the earliest.

Liz says she is lucky to have such a lot of support from the team who have been fully 'hands on' since her accident. Liz's hands are tied, but there is no stopping the quality musicians she is promoting.

Next up in the series, fair winds bring folk icons Fairport Convention sailing into Middlewich for a full hold night of music along with Staffordshire folk musician and songwriter Pete Shirley and virtuoso guitarist Nigel Beck.

A rum do ? More like a night to go down in history !
